There are a number of factors that may affect your suitability for All-on-4® dental implants. To assess your individual situation and determine your candidacy, a Next Smile™ certified surgeon will carefully examine your dental and overall health, utilising CT scans of your jawbone, digital impressions and photographic imaging, as well as your patient history.
Considering the results of your initial consultation and assessment, they will then recommend a tailor-made treatment solution that serves your needs and preferences. In rare cases, medical conditions can interfere with your suitability for dental implants. Should our team determine that you are not a candidate for All-on-4® based on health concerns, we will recommend alternative treatment options.
Dental implants and the All-on-4® treatment are by far the best options for patients suffering from tooth loss, decay or severe gum disease. Dentures are difficult to wear and function with, bridges do not feel like natural teeth, can be damaged easily and require replacement over the years.
With All-on-4® treatment you’ll enjoy better outcomes in terms of functionality, look and feel. Compared to other treatment methods, All-on-4® also provides for simpler maintenance and easier cleaning of your dental implants and fixed teeth. You’ll be able to live life as you did before, chewing, biting and smiling with an entirely new, permanent set of natural-looking teeth.
All-on-4® allows for the treatment of complex cases that were previously too difficult, if not impossible to address. Our treatment approach gives us more flexibility to design the best-tailored solution for you.
From your initial consultation with one of our highly-skilled surgeons to the assessment of your suitability for All-on-4® and the completion of your surgery: You can walk away with brand new teeth in 24 hours of surgery. The procedure itself can be completed on one and the same day.
All-on-4® has an extremely high success rate of over 98 percent*. There is a minimal risk that an All-on-4® dental implant procedure may fail.
However, carefully following all aftercare instructions provided by your Next Smile™ team will greatly decrease the possibility of failure. This includes maintaining proper oral hygiene, eating soft foods during the healing phase, staying hydrated and avoiding smoking.
Like with any surgical procedure, potential risks and complications may include:
- Poor healing
In rare cases, dental implants fail to integrate due to factors such as poor oral hygiene, teeth grinding, smoking, poor bone density, nutrition, or pre-existing health conditions.
Tooth loss and a decrease in bone mass often go hand in hand. Due to the strategic placement of All-on-4® implants, they can be a good choice for patients who do not have sufficient bone mass or density to support traditional dental implants. To find out if you’re a suitable candidate for All-on-4® dental implants, don’t hesitate to contact your local Next Smile™ clinic.
Dental implants are a permanent solution. But the long-term success of All-on-4® dental implants depends on you and your oral health habits. Unlike your natural teeth, dental implants will not be prone to tooth decay, but they still require you to keep up good oral hygiene and regular professional cleaning. With regular care, All-on-4® dental implants will last you a life-time.
